Question about Computers & Internet
Is the fan dirty/dusty is there sufficent air flow? Try a Cold-Restart, unplug AC cord, remove battery, hold down on/off button for 10 seconda, replace battery, plug into AC outlet, start normally. if that fails Try a system restore/recovery. That's a start. It sounds like a hardware issue, the shut off issue. The DVD/CD sounds like a driver issue. Thouroghly clean the fans, get more air flow, use a laptop cooler if necessary, Restore/recoery if necessary.

SOURCE: hp pavillion dv1000 cd rom drive
Sounds as though you may need to reinstall the driver for the laptop's cdrom drive. The easiest way I've found to do this is to download it directly from the manufacturer's web site; In your case, look here:
Download the file to your desktop (file name is sp30367.exe), and run the installation to reinstall & update the DVD/CD-ROM drivers.
Hope this helps!

First remove power from the computer before attempting to remove any internal device.Remove the battery the memory and the power supply.Press the power button and hold for twenty seconds.Once done replace the removed items and try again.If no go try removing the memory only if your computer beeps then you have bad memory,try one stick at a time.Failing this *********** board is bad.

The lens is causing the problem. Simplifying a bit, on a DVD unit, the same lens must "focus" on a laser beam reflected by the disk. CD and DVD reflect laser beams on different frequencies.
A scratched or dirty lens may be able to read DVD and not CDs.
Try first cleaning the lens with a CD cleaner product. you can also try cleaning the lens with isopropyl alcohol and cotton stub, be aware that there is risk to make situation worse using this technique. If you put too much force on lens , the optical drive may not work at all afterward.
If that does not work, rather than replacing the lens, on a laptop you replace the optical drive alltoghether.
